Successful Traders Focus On Five Priorities

Successful traders within a trade exchange exhibit some of the same characteristics:
1)    They're excited about purchasing at a wholesale barter cost, so they exhibit a very positive attitude about barter.
2)    They understand that communications with their trade broker is of utmost importance It is a part of their weekly business agenda.
3)    They're also aware that patience is necessary in the barter world. Because not every business barters, sometimes a product or service isn't readily available.
Good traders are thankful for the wide array of availabilities, and actively trade for what's obtainable by focusing and spending their trade dollars in the following manner:

Priority one: Products and services to increase business — advertising, radio, TV, newspapers, handbills.

Priority two: Business expenses — supplies, signs, furniture, business machines, maintenance.
Priority three: Investments — artwork, collectibles, real estate (buying equities or deeded properties and selling them for cash through exchange realtors whose commission is in trade).
Priority four: Personal items — insurance, doctors, dentists, clothing, home-improvements.
Priority five: Luxury items — travel, jewelry, stereos, artwork.

Develop Your Financial Common Sense

In his best-selling book, What Losing Taught Me About Winning, Fran Tarkenton noted, "I have yet to hear any entrepreneur complain about being up to his ears in cash with nowhere to spend it." Tarkenton, who has run twelve businesses with annual revenues ranging from under $1 million to $142 million, maintains that every business has a cash crunch at one time or another. That's why it's so vital to develop your financial common sense early on, so you do not have to rely on dollars to keep your business alive.
He doesn't think it does an entrepreneur any good, particularly in the early going, to be able to buy his or her way out of problems. In his book he says the way around borrowing, and buying your way out of problems, is to leverage your relationships.
"You cannot be parochial or narrowly focused, operating in a protective crouch," Tarkenton cautioned, "while all those businesses around you, both big and small, are reaching out and joining forces wherever possible. If you are going to succeed as an entrepreneur, you have to learn to think of your business not only as an income generating tool, but also as a leveraging tool — something that has value that can be traded to create greater value." — World's Largest Depository Of Barter Information

How To Find Best Cruise Vacation Values

Super values for international vacations are now available in the marketplace, with cruise deals for as little as $50 a day per person. This includes comfortable well-maintained accommodations with maid service, 3 meals daily, plus shipboard activities and nightly entertainment.
Cruise trips are a super bargain and the ship lines can provide outstanding value because of the efficiency with which they deliver their service. For example, the typical cruise ship has teams of room stewards, chefs and waiters working 7 days a week to clean 1,000 cabins per day and prepare and serve three or four meals a day to 2,000 passengers.
When the ship sails from the port of departure, the staff knows exactly how many meals will be served for the entire cruise and the ship has been provisioned accordingly. Every cabin, table, and employee is fully utilized every day. That's much more efficient and less wasteful than the system land-based hotels and restaurants must employ to serve a much smaller group of customers who vary in number daily.
As ships have gotten larger and cruise lines have grown into billion-dollar enterprises, feeding and transporting more than 15 million passengers every year, the cruise lines' huge buying power has reduced their costs for everything consumed on the ship. Plus larger ships and show lounges spread the cost of entertainers, the captain, officers, and cruise director over more people. And unlike airlines and hotels that accept empty seats and rooms during slow periods, cruise lines will do whatever it takes to sail full.
All lines, except the four 6-star cruise lines, will slash prices as low as they need to in order to fill every cabin. Even the 6-star lines are now offering discounts and free excursions that were once unheard of.
They do this for two reasons. First, on most lines a significant percentage of the crews' compensation comes from gratuities — and there are no gratuities from empty cabins. Second, venues such as casinos, spas, boutiques, photography studios, and excursion desks are completely dependent on onboard purchases. Purchases that are obviously directly related to the number of people onboard.
All of this has resulted in the best bargains ever for people cruising today.
